While using my Nordictrack a2550 this morning, the walking belt began to slip very badly. I checked the alignment and adjusted the tension of the belt as per the user's manual but the belt stills slip...


if it really is the walking belt that is slipping keep tightening the adjustment screws till the belt will not slip when you try to stop it ( set speed to about 3 and then with your foot try to stop belt from spinning - you should be able to make the motor and whole machine come to a stop ) make sure it is really walk belt spinning and it isnt the motor belt slipping. (if it is motor belt slipping when you try to do the stop the belt trick i just described you will see the walk belt and front roller stop but still hear the motor turning) once you get walk belt tight enough so it doesnt slip then you can worry about keeping the belt centered.

let me know if you need more help on this and let me know how the stop the belt test went

good luck!

My belt keep slipping. And I try tighten the ajustment bolts.


Make sure you adjust vthe motor belt first, it may be where the slipping is coming from. You should only be able to twist a properly tightened motor belt 45 degrees. After that, readjust the walk belt. If you have been tightening the walk belt trying to get the slipping out it may be too tight now. Use the instructions in your owners manual to adjust the walk belt. Also, lube under walk belt with the recommended lubrication . That will help the walk belt not too grab and take pressue off of both belts. Good luck

Just bought a Nordictrack a2550 last week. Only used it for about 2 hours and I'm having bet issues already. The belt will not stay centered no matter how much I try to fix it. The belt is also slipping...


Do you know if you are tightening it correctly?
Both bolts at the back of the walking belt should be turned clockwise to tighten the belt. You must also tighten the bolts the same amount and typically no more than 1/2 turns at a time. I usually adjust belts while the machine is running at approx 3 mph. Your belt should be just tight enough to not slip when you walk on it. If its too tight you'll wear out the motor bearings.

Belt is slipping,


It might just need a simple adjustment of the running belt that can eliminate the slipping refer to you owner's manual for the procedure. It will be close to all treadmill running belt adjustments.
Here is a generic procedure for adjusting the belt:
If the walking belt slips when walked on. Run the treadmill @ 3 to 4 mph, walk for a few minutes, Using the allen wrench, turn both rear roller adjustment bolts clockwise, 1/4 of a turn. Then repeat adjusting procedure until walking belt is properly tightened.

Have a 4.9 treadmill and cant get it to adjust if i loosen bolts in back it slips if i tighten bolts on motor it quits pulling when i put weight on it can you help


Ok I really need more info but let's take a stab at it. The bolts in the back of the rear roller adjust the belt right and left. It also tightens and loosens. Ok there is also a drive belt from the motor that needs to be tight. Generally you should be able to twist the drive belt about 45 degrees. If it's more than that it probably needs to be tightened. If this is loose it will affect the walking belt the same as the walking belt being loose. So when your walking belt is slipping, make sure you tightened the right belt. Tightening the wrong belt can lead to other problems. Tightening the walk belt with the rear roller- turn both bolts clockwise equally to tighten. Remember the walking belt will travel to side with least tension. So to center belt, adj left or right side to fine tune. If belts are adjusted properly and machine stops when you walk on it, you have other issues. Could be the deck ( the board under the belt) and belt or the motor.

Slips once and a while


Ther are two adjustments to check,the tightness of the walking belt(the screws at the back of the treadmill) and the tightness of the motor drive belt under the motor cover.

I tighten the screws behind the belt but it still slips as i walk


Sounds like the motor drive belt is slipping,remove the motor cover,be careful some models have hidden screws in recessed areas underneath if you remove the correct ones the hood comes off easily. There is a bracket that has a bolt to adjust the motor belt tension.Also if you tightened the walk belt up it may be too tight which could cause it to wear or tear easier,the rule of thumb is tighten the walk belt just tight enough so it doesn't slip.

I need help adjusting the belt on the trimwalk manual treadmill


To tighten the belt, start by locating the two bolts that adjust the rear roller (one on each side of the unit in the back). Run the unit at about 3 mph. Tighten the bolts a 1/4 turn at a time. Make sure that what you do to one side, you MUST do to the other side or the belt will get off center. After you tighten it 1/4 turn, check the belt to see if it is still slipping. If it is then tighten the belt 1/4 turn again. Continue until the belt does not slip, but do not tighten the bolts more than 2 full turns.

Slipping mat


This is caused by one of three problems. First and most likely, the walking belt is loose. To tighten the belt, start by locating the two bolts that adjust the rear roller (one on each side of the unit in the back). Run the unit at about 3 mph. Tighten the bolts a 1/4 turn at a time. Make sure that what you do to one side, you MUST do to the other side or the belt will get off center. After you tighten it 1/4 turn, check the belt to see if it is still slipping. If it is then tighten the belt 1/4 turn again. Continue until the belt does not slip, but do not tighten the bolts more than 2 full turns. If it takes more than 2 turns then something else is the problem. The second problem that it could be is the drive belt might be loose. To tighten the drive belt, start by removing the front cover. loosen the bolts around the motor then tighten the drive belt by tightening the motor adjuster bolt. Once the drive belt is tight, tighten the motor back down. The third problem that it could be is the walking belt could be worn and need to be replaced. Let me know if you have any questions.
